We need an intervention for this man
Is this why his girlfriend broke up with him?

Why is the Özil thread closed? I’m so happy Arteta is playing him again, we’re going to need his creativity this season.

Özil's inclusion is interesting. Wonder what it really means...

Guess we'll see if he's played. I don't think Arteta will ever play him because I've never seen Özil consistently do what Arteta demands.

He shys from tackles and 1v1s / aerial battles

Seems to shy from everything on the pitch these days.

Well Özil did do what was asked of Arteta before the COVID break.

Now that there’s no point in pushing him out anymore, we can focus purely on the football alone and appreciate what he can offer to the team. I’m excited.

Hmmm

I don't think he was dropped for purely footballing reasons but I'm also not sure what he can offer now. In a 4231 maybe but I don't think he can out in the effort to be part of the wins we've had Vs Liverpool, City Chelsea

I appreciate his talents but hard work, pressing and guile aren't among them

Personally hope we won’t be playing with a defensive 3-4-3 against poor teams. As Arteta himself said we need to learn dominate and attack the opposition. That’s where I see Özil’s role, rather than in big games against Liverpool/City where we need defensive players primarily.

Has anywhere actually confirmed the whole lineup yet?

Seeing a lot of reports mentioning the odd player who featured but nothing comprehensive.
